150 years of art at the MNAV

An exciting exhibition from the collection of this major museum explores the tension between figurative and abstract art.

At the heart of the Uruguayan capital, the National Museum of Visual Arts is nestled in the greenery of Parque Rodó one of the largest parks in Montevideo. Behind its colourful tin Mondrianesque facade is Uruguay's largest collection of visual art and the home of significant temporary exhibitions as well. « Colección MNAV » takes you through 150 years of art history in Uruguay, enriched by international trends. These influences allowed artists to free themselves from the figurative and move into the abstract in the 20th century, creating art that was literally outside the frame.
